Three Miles + Strides

Tag: Uncategorized
May 8th, 2013

A warm, sunny run. My miles were 14:35/135, 15:44/141, and 16:13/140. It’s a hilly route and it gets hillier as it goes. I ended with strides as prescribed by my 10K training program that I’m sort of following. It’s the only speedwork I do and it’s only once a week, so I hope it’s okay.

Today’s workout challenge:

  • 50 crunches
  • 80 squats
  • 20 crunches
  • 20 reverse crunches
  • 14 ab twists
  • 20 second plank
  • 30 squats
  • 40 second plank
  • 40 Russian twists
  • 20 crunches (which weren’t very good, in my son’s opinion

Managed to eat enough calories today, but a glass of orange juice and my Vitalyte took me way over the sugar count.

I can zip the dress I want to wear on Saturday!

Tomorrow, I am adding an extra day of running. Just half an hour on the treadmill for now. I have a long way to go to get to a decent mileage base. Luckily, this low heart rate training is pretty pleasant and it makes me want to run every day. The hard part is knowing that I have to build up very gradually and that it would be a good idea to keep at least one rest day for now.
